bought off ebay but from same seller (MX5 parts): Basically like others I found the actual unit does what it's supposed to do, BUT the 'sales pitch' makes no reference to the need for having to drill extra holes into both the plate and the fibre-glass bodywork to accommodate the UK numberplate!
Furthermore the rawl-plug-like 'studs' and their plastic screws were next to useless as I could not screw in tightly at all (for the stud to remain fixed) before the plastic screw supplied sheared apart...
I was actually thankful therefore for the need to drill 2x 3mm holes in both the plinth and the car so that the numberplate itself is fixed to the car with the plinth in-between by way of a self-tapping screw, if that makes sense!
Job took approx 15 mins and I was grateful to having read other reviews first as it forewarned me I might need to do this extra DIY...
Sorry it's the last point, but the delivery speed was AMAZING: bought at approx 3pm on-line and arrived next morning; under 24hr turnaround!
Would have been 3 stars for the product, but the usual service expected from MX5 parts made it 4; would have been 5 if the need for further drilling (apart from the 8mm holes that were already there, thankfully) was mentioned.
